This is a discussion on Looking at getting the 40litre for DP within the Freshwater Aquarium Equipment forums, part of the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium category; -->
I got someone to help me post a link to the page (gosh it was embarrassingly simple!!!) hope it works.
I don't know if ...
in the U.S. a 10 gallon (which is about 40litres i think?) sells brand new under $20.
you then could get a HOB filter for $20, light for $10,heater for $10, a bag of play sand for $5 and be set. these numbers are estimates but your still under the price of that tank. infact im sure you could get a complete kit at a general store ( i dont think walmart is in england lol ) but something equivalent.
i personally wouldnt spend that much for that, but its your money. it is all in one so it comes ready to go but setting up your own tank isnt to difficult and would be cheaper.
I agree....it is your money, but you can pick up that stuff up for cheaper than the price of that kit. I'm not sure what all is included with your kit as far as decorations and subtrate, but if you buy it all seperately you can customize everything to your liking rather than using their standard set-up!
You get some real bargains in the US. To be honest I suspected as much - price a little high for tank size (although it looks sooo lovely) which is why I thought I'd ask you guys. If I do go for make ur own - buying a second hand tank I will need lots of help (like best way to clean out tank, filter, heater, lighting to get) - I'll look into it first though and see if it will be much cheaper bearing in mind I'll be buying British .
